Teen Dating Violence and Childhood Exposure to Intimate Partner Violence: An Assessment Tool for Providers - PALM Version

In an effort to reach child and adolescent health practitioners who rely on palm-based electronic tools for quick reference, Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund, in collaboration with Leigh Kimberg, MD, and Denise Bilbao, MD recently created a new assessment tool for childhood exposure to intimate partner violence and adolescent dating violence. This tool compliments one developed earlier for screening in primary care and other departments. The new tool is ideal for health care providers providing care to children, parents and adolescents. Complete with tips on how to conduct inquiry, assessment, intervention, documentation, and follow-up for domestic violence, along with facts and web links, this palm ready tool is available in two formats, for either the iSilo or Documents to Go text readers.

The iSilo version allows you to link freely within the document as you would on a website, while the Documents to Go version resembles a more static Word document. The Documents to Go reader comes bundled with most palm operating systems, whereas the iSilo reader (widely used) is available for free online.

Documents to Go format

Documents to Go is a text reader that comes bundled with most palm operating systems. If it is not already on your palm, install it from the software CD that came with your palm.

Once you've installed the Documents to Go reader, all you have to do is download the tool in Documents to Go format (click on the link below and save the files to your hard drive). Once the tool is available on your hard drive, there are two ways to get it onto your palm. Either directly drag the document onto the Documents to Go icon (seen on your desktop), or choose "Add Item" when using the Documents to Go program. At your next hotsync, the tool will be directly added to your palm. Access it via the Documents to Go reader.
